Abstract This dataset provides a continuous monthly rainfall series for the Island of Ireland commencing in January 1711 and running to December 2016. It draws upon diverse sources including weather diaries and early observations. The early record has been quality assured (so far as is possible), through comparison with other long term observational records and climate reconstructions for the regions of the British Irish Isles.
